About the Friends of the Waikīkī Aquarium

The Friends of the Waikīkī Aquarium (FOWA) is the membership organization of the Waikīkī Aquarium dedicated to supporting its mission to inspire and promote understanding, appreciation and conservation of Pacific marine life.

The members of FOWA are individuals, businesses and organizations interested in the purposes of the Waikīkī Aquarium and Hawaiʻi’s marine life. We officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1995.

Support of the Aquarium and our members through fundraising, member programs, and capital campaign projects is at the heart of our organization. In the past year alone, we’ve spearheaded a lot of new and exciting initiatives to enhance both visitor and member experiences. Click the button to learn more!
